Detailing company in CT

Can anyone recommend a detailing company in the CT area? I'd like to get an exterior detail of my new M3 after delivery (I don't want the dealer to touch it). I'm considering an Opti-coat or 22PLE.

Thanks

Don't know about CT but make a trip up to Wakefield MA and get your car detailed by Rick at Unique Car Care. Rick owns the place a d I have never seen his type of quality ever. In fact I took off from work a bit early today to get my car washed by him. It's worth it!

I have to second the vote for Rick. We no longer live in the area, but he is the go to guy for excellent work.

I've heard good things about Rick however its over a 2 and 1/2 hour drive from my place. I don't have the time to make that trip. Plus i want to get my wife's X3 done too. I need someone mobile.

On a separate note - what is a reasonable price to pay for a new car prep with opti-coat or 22PLE?

What part of CT are you in?

If southern (FFLD county), I have to recommend Phil at Detailer's domain. He's one of the best. His shop is literally right over the Tappan Zee bridge, 30-45min from Stamford.

I wish i could go to Phil @ Detailers domain but he is about a hour and half from my home and it could be difficult to arrange to drop my car off and get a ride given that i have minimal time these day due to having a newborn.

I know what you mean man (minus the newborn), it is kind of a pain to get it dropped off and picked up again!

Also an hour+ is a little too far for sure.

Morgan at Eco Auto Detail does a nice job detailing cars and will come to your place of business or home. I'm not sure whether he does OC or PLE, but you can ask. Good luck and congrats on the new M3!

Yes I've used Morgan before when I had an e90 m3. He is great. I contacted him and I am going to schedule a new car prep with him. He is going to opti coat my new car.
